Devotion for Wednesday after Advent 1

Genesis 3:15 (NASB)
15 And I will put enmity
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her seed;
He shall bruise you on the head,
And you shall bruise him on the heel.”

We have an enemy, the serpent, Satan, the devil. He will attack us and hurt us any way he can, but the power doesn’t belong to him. It belongs to the One Who put the enmity between us. Satan has a lot of power on this earth now, but during Advent we look forward to his demise. It is coming. Jesus is coming!

Lord God Almighty, we praise You that You are in control. You have allowed Satan to be our enemy here in earth, but we thank You that You will ultimately destroy him and rule in glory. Though we are enemies, Satan doesn’t always bruise us on the heel. Often he entices us promises of things we think we want but that can’t compare to the treasures You have stored up for us. We know the day is coming when Satan will be cast into the pit of fire, but in the meantime, Lord, we need the help of the Holy Spirit to serve You and You alone. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
